Massachusetts Slips And Falls In Stores

Massachusetts slips and falls in stores happen all the time.  Many of my Massachusetts slip and fall clients have the misfortune of falling while shopping.  Whether it be at the local coffee shop, or while shopping for groceries, or shopping for clothes, people are injured much too often at stores.  It is shocking how common these accidents occur. Oftentimes, store owners fail to make sure their stores are reasonably safe for customers.  That is what typically causes these accidents.  This branch of law is called premises liability.

It is important to keep in mind however that not ever fall (and resulting injuries) are the legal fault of the respective store.  Rather, before the store can be held liable for your injuries, it must be shown the store had notice of the condition you claim caused your injuries.
